Burnett (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Burnett was listed as questionable despite three full practices this week, and will make his return after sitting out Week 13 against the Chargers. The 29-year-old should assume his rotational role at strong safety behind rookie Terrell Edmunds.
Burnett sat out the Steelers' Week 13 loss to the Chargers due to a back injury, but he has now logged three straight full practices. If the veteran safety is able to suit up against the Raiders on Sunday, he'll play his usual rotational role.
Burnett (back) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.
Burnett sat out last Sunday's loss to the Chargers after not practicing during the week, and his quick return to full participation is an encouraging sign. The 29-year-old had been serving in a secondary role at safety behind rookie Terrell Edmunds before the back injury cropped up, and will likely see a similar role with his return.
Burnett (back) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Burnett was listed as doubtful after not practicing this week so him not playing Sunday was to be expected. The veteran safety has played limited snaps in recent weeks as rookie Terrell Edmunds will continue to start at strong safety.
Burnett did not practice in any extent this week, and he appears on track to sit out Sunday's primetime tilt against the Chargers. If Burnett is indeed unable to suit up Week 13, expect Jordan Dangerfield, Mike Hilton and Artie Burns to benefit from slightly increased workloads.
